Take Back The Night 2014

Women across the world are taking back their voices by speaking out against these crimes, but there is much to be accomplished in the fight to end sexual violence. Crimes of this nature continue to appear in the news in epidemic proportions. As the history of Take Back The Night continues to be written, its mission to end sexual violence for all remains a beacon of hope for the millions affected by crimes of violence. We have made great strides, but our march is far from over.

  •       April 3rd, 2014 - Walk A Mile In Her Shoes - 6:00pm-8:00pm (Culp Center - Cave Patio, start and end point)

Here they come... men in heels. Their mission? To crush sexual violence! Walk a Mile in Her Shoes is the International Men's March to Stop Rape, Sexual Assault & Gender Violence. OASIS (Outreach & Advocacy: Sexuality Information for Students) is your campus's sexual and relationship violence prevention program, and we are pleased to announce that, for the first time here at ETSU, we will be hosting this event! The march is set for April 3, 2014, from 6-8 pm, starting at the Cave Patio, D.P. Culp Center.

2014 is the year we launch this fun, fabulous event here at ETSU, and we are asking you to participate. Other Walk a Mile in Her Shoes marches in locations such as Asheville, Chattanooga, and Memphis have been hugely successful, so we have some BIG SHOES to fill (ha)!

Based on current statistics, thousands of women and hundreds of men at ETSU are affected by sexual assault and relationship violence during their college careers. Silence is complicity. As a university community, we cannot afford to remain silent. We are asking you to consider joining the march and promoting male leadership by rallying your fraternity, team, department, and/or friends to do the same, so together we can bring attention to the sexual violence crisis.

Compete with other men on campus for: Most Spirited Team; Most Spirited Individual; Most Spirited Cheering Squad; Best Walk; Mr. Congeniality

So...can YOU handle it? Are YOU man enough? Are YOU ready to walk the walk?

If the answer is "YES!", and I know it is, fill out the participation form and either return it to me immediately, email it to or ,or drop it off at the ETSU Counseling Center, Rm. 345 in the Culp Center.
